THE GIFT OF A ROSE

gift of a rose_edited-2

This poem came sometime after my poem Full Of Roses. I was actually out pruning the roses in my garden when a nice breeze blew across my face. I closed my eyes and pictured Jesus again as the rose. I then began to see myself as a rose and Jesus as my Gardner. As I felt His Holy Spirit I couldn’t help but feel incredible joy. Knowing when He prunes my branches, the love that He puts into it. We are His joy, as He walks us through the breaking of ourselves, as He cuts off dead branches making room for new. The care He puts into us, knowing it is going to be painful but also knowing the love and care He pours over us in the process.

When we allow Jesus to do His inner and outer work with us, He is like the Potter shaping His most beloved piece of work. This work is the living work He created in His likeness to share everything of Himself. The deep intimate relationship He has with us individually is so beyond amazing. I was going through so much change during that time. I was reading a book on the vine and the branches as I was literally experiencing His deep work in me. Here I was trimming the roses and His Holy spirit comes upon me, to love on me. When I think about that I am overwhelmed by it, especially knowing the moment I shared with Him, He had you in mind. Isn’t that amazing? We truly are the body of Christ. What I shared with Him that day, He is now touching your heart with the truth of His incredible love for you. It is wonderful to share the truth of God in my life with you. I hope it truly blesses you. If you don’t think you could have this kind of relationship with Him you are wrong. He waits at the door of your heart, waiting for you to open it.

Philippians 3:20

20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER

THE LOVE OF THE FATHER PSD_edited-1


1 Corinthians 13

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. …

Love is what we were created for. Love is the choice we have been given. Everything in this life was purposed to teach us love. Anyone who rejects love finds its opposite which is hate and evil. Turning from love, is like removing all light and entering into complete darkness. Many who are lost, whose hearts have been stricken, who have lost the knowledge and purity of love by clouds of darkness, through the invasion from one who seeks to plague its truth from our lives. Everywhere you turn you can see the hypnosis plaguing our thoughts, minds, eyes and words, seeking to squeeze love from our lives. The more we become busy, stressed and preoccupied by this life, the more love will be the furthest from our minds. If we allow it, this world will dictate what is in our hearts. If we don’t stop refocus and meditate on truth, the world and its darkness will consume us. Innocent children living in a curse because those intrusted choose darkness over light.

Are we so blinded? Do we lack the courage to lead the way? Is it so hard to choose love and light though we might experience rejection. Are we so easily manipulated and numbed by our hardship? Can we not see the wrong done to us and use it as strength to change the world? Where are the courageous? Where is my lamp? Why isn’t it shining truth? Why am I still falling to the lies? Have we lost where our hope comes from? We need to be praying and turning the tides! If we light our lights together and shine them as we come together, there will be enough light to light the world. Those in darkness would be forced to see. I want to start a revolution in the hearts of Christians. I want to start a fire. If my words are burning in your heart then break out in prayer.

If we as Christians have gifts and yet have not love, we are a lamp covered by its shade. We need to be praying and I would love to see the wall of this blog covered in prayers. I want to see them for your children, your families, your work place, and your personal walks. The Holy spirit wrote this post and it is burning in me as I hope it is in you. Join me in turning up our lamps and surrendering to our King. His love has covered us all. His banner over us is love. let us join hearts together across the world lifting our hearts in praise and love to the Lamb who is worthy. Bring your lamps to this alter, turn them up with the fire of truth and love to our savior, let mercy and truth kiss our lives.

0 Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
and prepares the way for his steps.

May God burn in you today a fresh and glorious lamp shinning fourth His love. The love of the father can be purchased at  www.fullofrosesinspirationals.com
